, muslims do not want us to burn the koran. the imam has agreed to move the mosque, we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday and on saturday, i will be flying up there to meet with him. >> reporter: well, the pastor's claims about imam rauf seem completely at odds with what the imam said on a television interview last night. >> the spiritual leader behind the so-called ground zero mosque claims not building it is now a matter of national security. imam rauf says if that opponents have their way, forcing the project to be moved or abandoned that would only inflame muslim radicals and endanger american lives. >> our national security now, it hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it and what we do. >> he says had he known the project would have generated such opposition he would not have proposed it in the first place, but now, it's too late. >> if we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse. the headlines in the muslim world will be that islam is under attack. >> reporter: opponents such as 9/11 family member debra burling
to move that. we felt that that would be a sign that god would want us to do it. the american people do not want the mosque there, and, of course, muslims do not want us to burn the koran. the imam has agreed to move the mosque. we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday. and on saturday, i will be flying up there to meet with him. >> larry: it's getting confusing. let's go to cnn's john zarrella in gainesville, florida, where the story seems to change by themen. now, john, let's get it. is the koran burning going to take place or not? >> reporter: well, larry, at this point, pastor jones just a little while ago came out and said that he hopes what the imam told him was true. if it's not true, then their plans are right now in limbo and they may have to rethink their position. at this point, the koran burning is not taking place, but that may be contingent upon whether or not jones gets a meeting in new york on saturday with the imam, feisal rauf, to discuss the moving of the islamic learning center, the proposed islamic learning center from near ground zero to another location. but
and burn him. pastor jones said he is the who is offended. >> they are burning our flag and pictures of us. we are supposed to do nothing? we are supposed to apologize for our actions? we must do something. >> reporter: the church displayed more than 200 korans to news cameras. some they bought and others were donated. the church will burn them saturday, the anniversary of 9/11. >> we believe in what we believe. we believe in the bible and standing up for it. >> we are not going to allow that! >> this as the protesting construction of an islamic center near ground zero. he is proceeding with the community center that will be multifaith with separate prayer room for muslims, christians, jews and other faces. he is planning a multifaith memorial for the victims of 9/11 and insists he is sympathetic to the families. let us commemorate of anniversary of 9/11 by pausing to reflect and meditate and tone down the rhetoric that serves to strengthen the radicles and weaken beliefs and our values. moderate muslim americans say the protests and the threatened koran burning signal a growing intoleranc

's in an interview right now on camera. his son informed us that he is willing to meet with me and as soon as he finishes his interview that meeting will take place. >> reporter: what is your message today that is different than yesterday? or is it just more of applied pressure? >> i'm not applying any pressure. i'm trying to awaken his sense and his religious beliefs. to remind him. i believe that a reminder benefits the believers where if he looks to his heart of hearts and if he looks to the scripture, he will find the answer. jesus would tell him, this is not the right approach. and i came to him with some ideas that i think he might be interested in. and i want to discuss them with him and hopefully that will be the deal maker. >> reporter: is the damage already done? as the expression goes, has the horse left the barn? there's another person in tennessee who says on 9/11 he plans to burn korans in his house, videotape it and put it on the internet. if this goes viral, does it matter now at in the point whether he does it or not? >> i think that that's what everybody was afraid of. the copy

department has put u.s. embassies around the world on alert, ordered them to review their security before any violence against america erupts. and the fbi reportedly is collecting information about the plan to burn the koran. officials may have no power to stop it, given jones' constitutional right to free expression. president obama lambasted jones' plans with a reminder about america's fundamental beliefs. >> i just hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as americans. >> and politicians from both ends of the spectrum slam the plan. sarah palin called it an unnecessary provocation. senator john mccain begged jones not to do it via twitter. but a group known as the agenda project has released a video accusing them of stirring out fervor with their own fight against a planned mosque near ground zero. and that fervor may be growing. the fbi is investigating vandalism at a phoenix mosque. blamed a fire in tennessee on an arsonist. hartford, connecticut was planning to allow local imams to give a muslim prayer at the start of the council meetings,

for that news conference to begin. jim, if you would, give us a sense of the scene at this hour? >> reporter: sure, here at the command center for the fire, people are apprehensive for the weather today. yesterday a firefighters called it a gift, cool and humid. today, not so lucky. dry and a real chance winds could pick up later this afternoon. they are trying to make progress and try to contain it before it happens. several subdivisions opening to areas evacuated but not burned. the real heart of the fire, people not allowed back. people are restless but authorities don't want anybody up there until they feel it's safe. >> any word on the unaccounted for and how they will search for them? >> reporter: searching is difficult because people evacuated from the canyons, staying with friends and families, staying in hotels and around the evacuated area. they are optimistic that nobody has actually been hurt and people have gone off with family and haven't checked in but it's going to be difficult. these houses that have burned, it's just the foundation that's left. >> give us a heads up when th
've been this is an enormous fire because. if you take a look at south of us, that's where the fire is going on there, it's a neighborhood that's being protected by firefighters. they're there, just in case these keupbdz winds shift again and right now they're blowing from us towards the fire, so i would say away from we are now. in a few minutes that we've been here, we've seen the flames brought down quite a bit. you can't really see flames from where we're standing at this point but certainly this is in a very tens situation in this neighborhood and frankly a lot of the neighbors have been out, trying to simply lend a hand to the police, firefighters, they've been directing traffic, telling people to stay out where they shouldn't be going, keeping cars away from the emergency personnel area where they're trying it get. this is a neighborhood on guard, watching out for each other, watching out for the emergency personnel as well. when we first got out here, as i was telling you, when we first got out here, the flames were quite a bit bigger. walk to your left here and look at that
lie to me. >> that's a hard thing to put together. we're used to dealing in objective facts. how do you get the facts from a guy, pastor jones who won't even say who this man is who he talked to? who is this man who may have tricked him? >> i take it was is the imam from central florida, muhammad musry he was meeting with. but i asked him, like who were you on the phone with? no names. look, doesn't it fit in many ways the way much of this has played out in terms of i had a very long interview with pastor jones and tried to get to some very specifics with him why he wanted to burn the koran. what specifically was in the koran that was most offensive to him. and he hadn't even read the koran. he basically admitted maybe he had looked at a page but primary what he said was there's no mention of jesus christ in the koran as the savior. anybody who understands religions understands that would not be in there in the same way it's not in the tora. i said are you going to start burning the tora, he said no. a lot of this has been very confusing in terms of why he said he was doing this and
in as a shed fire. that's where the shed used to be. but when it was burning, winds sent the flames 20 feet away to this row of the town houses melting that vinyl siding. >> vinyl siding covers all these town houses. highly flammable. a good temperature. so the threat of the fire as it goes up here to the topics, quickly made their way to the attic in the roof area. >> reporter: now, of course, it could have been much worse, but the neighbors knocked on doors, getting everybody out. the firefighters got all the pets. and just incredible. a little big. actually, this is a heavy cat found alive inside the burned townhouse. can you believe it? or owner has a huge smile on her face. as all the pets made it out okay. it was a hot and raging fire. >> and she looks almost as big as you are. >> like 20 pounds. 15 years old, that cat. unbelievable. burned whiskers. >> did those town homes have fire walls? >> they absolutely do have fire walls. you can see the brick coming out. but the brick does not come far enough out. that's the way it is. and the vinyl siding is so flammable that the fire gets up
tween the u.s. and iran. iran accuses them of spying. their families say they were just hiking in the mountains near the iran/iraq border. >> we see the islamic republic use their reporters as political collateral before but they are obviously incredibly savvy when it comes to the media and the pr game. and the worst thing that could happen to them would be that something would happen to sarah inside the prison. >> reporter: there's no immediate sign bauer and fattal will be released but his lawyer says he's hopeful. >> does this bring any hope at all for the other two hikers? i hope that the trial is back on track and the 24th cases will be resolved quickly. we reached sarah's mother. she had no official word from iran. she heard the news from us. she's now folk ugs all her hope on when she can finally see her daughter again. jim sciutto, abc news, washington. >>> heavy rain from memphis into kentucky and southern illinois. large hail and gusty winds across nebraska, kansas and oklahoma and somealate rain into the dakotas and montana as well as some showers in florida. >>> 91
thing that caused us to do it. just a deep conviction from god that something has to happen. >> reporter: so he is praying. as are so many other people around the world. i'm terry moran in gainesville, florida. >> now more information's starting to come out about this guy. they said apparently he doesn't know any muslims personally and a lot of what he knows about the religion has come from youtube. a lot of question about who this guy is. >> countering extremism with extremism is what a lot of people are saying. it's interesting. in 2005 there was just a report out that some guards at guantanamo bay flushed a koran, and that incited deadly riots in afghanistan. when you later general david petraeus saying this could really hurt our armed men overseas, it is a worry. >>> coming up after the break, the results of a study on memory loss. >> who is osked more, men or women? you're watching "world n >>> in a new study that proves what women and myself have really known for years, that men are more forgetful. >> not surprised here. the study from the mayo clinic says as men age they are much
in his church. does it make use feel helpless? angry? >> well, it is frustrating. now, on the other hand, we are a government of laws. and so, we have to abide by those laws. and my understanding is that he can be cited for public burning. but that's the extent of the laws that we have available to us. part of this country's history is people doing destructive or offensive, harmful things. and yet, we still have to make sure that we're following the laws. and that's part of what i love about this country. >> you can see how sobering this is. >> sure. >> to the president. we've had general petraeus, hillary clinton, the president, all speaking out, trying to stop this. and you pointed out earlier, sarah palin, weighing in, as well. >> as often as has been said, just because you have the right to do something, doesn't mean you should do it. and the fbi is concerned about this. >>> let's bring in pierre thomas. he's been talking to the fbi overnight about this. >> reporter: you can add fbi officials to those who think the proposed burning of korans this weekend is provocative and potentiall
